I uploaded this video to YouTube on March 27, 2017. I'm adding this video in its original MP4 format to Archive.org for archival purposes.
Viper Test Pattern by Alternative Engineering. Released in 1981 for the Bally Arcade/Astrocade. For use with a RAM Expansion and an extended BASIC, such as Vipersoft BASIC or Blue Ram BASIC.
According to The BASIC Express newsletter, "The program puts up a gorgeous ever-changing complex pattern on the screen. You would swear that 32 different colors are on screen at the same time." This is a neat program that uses some of the features of extended BASIC (such as the CIRCLE command) and the additional colors that are not available without using machine language from Bally BASIC or "AstroBASIC."
This video art program was released on a cassette tape with Viper 1 RAM Expansion. It also appeared in July/August 1981 BASIC Express newsletter (Vol. 3, Pages 26-27) and the December 1981 Arcadian newsletter (Vol. 4, Page 19).
